Local MP chuffed to be on board Seaford Line railway 150 years celebrations


Norman Baker Seaford 150th

Local Lib Dem MP Norman Baker attended the celebrations of 150 years of the Seaford Line railway on Saturday 7 June.

An exciting programme of events was laid on by Sussex Community Rail Partnership, with local volunteers. These included a family cycle ride from Newhaven Town, a film screening at Bishopstone, vintage vehicle display at Lewes and a community picnic at London Road.

Norman says: “This was a fantastic day of events celebrating Seaford Line railway, with the local community out in force.

“The next challenge is to open the Lewes-Uckfield line, which would allow the return of hourly direct services from Seaford and Newhaven to London via Uckfield.

“Full steam ahead for the next 150 years!”
